A woman underwent ascending aortic aneurysm repair, aortic root and valve replacement, and coronary artery bypass grafting. Her postoperative course was complicated by stroke and status epilepticus. With supportive care and antiepileptics, her neurologic status improved. Intravenous heparin and aspirin were initiated. On postoperative day 13, she developed a large retroperitoneal hematoma with femoral neuropathy. Because her hematoma was not amenable to percutaneous drainage or surgical evacuation, and considering her comorbidities, a conservative approach was elected...

BACKGROUND: Patients with metastatic disease of the liver can have hyperbilirubinemia due to a number of reasons, including biliary obstruction. The purpose of this study was to analyze patient outcomes after percutaneous biliary drainage (PBD) catheter insertion in patients with extensive hepatic metastatic tumor burden. METHODS: Out of 746 PBD insertions, 44 patients (24 males, 20 females, mean age 57.4 years, range, 34-80 years) had metastatic malignancy with a hepatic tumor burden of greater than 20% parenchymal volume based on pre-procedure computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)...

BACKGROUND: The population of adults with congenital heart disease (ACHD) is increasing and aging, and a large percentage of this population is now over 65 years of age. For this reason, it is probable that acquired coronary artery disease (CAD) will become an important issue that needs to be addressed also in these patients. We retrospectively analyzed all ACHD patients who underwent surgery in our Institution with the aim to investigate the incidence of associated CAD and the results of surgical treatment...

There have been reports of late discharge of gallstones through operative wounds after spillage into the peritoneal cavity during laparoscopic cholecystectomy and after the development of spontaneous cholecystocutaneous fistulae. However, spontaneous discharge of gallstones from the tract of a percutaneous cholecystostomy or percutaneous drainage of a perforated gall bladder has not, to the best of our knowledge, been reported previously. We report a case in which a patient who had a percutaneous drain inserted for a perforated gall bladder discharged 34 gallstones from the tract after removal of the 7-F pigtail catheter...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (ERCP) with biliary stenting for the treatment of unresectable malignant biliary obstruction (MBO) is challenging among patients with surgically altered anatomy. Endoscopic ultrasound-guided antegrade biliary stenting (EUS-ABS) was introduced as an alternative biliary drainage method, although it has not been well studied yet. In this single-center prospective pilot study, we aimed to evaluate the feasibility and safety of EUS-ABS for MBO in patients with surgically altered anatomy...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Acute cholecystitis in patients who are not candidates for surgery is often managed with percutaneous transhepatic gallbladder drainage (PT-GBD). Endoscopic ultrasound-guided gallbladder drainage (EUS-GBD) with a lumen-apposing metal stent (LAMS) is an effective alternative to PT-GBD. We compared the technical success of EUS-GBD vs PT-GBD, as well as patient outcomes, numbers of adverse events (AEs), length of hospital stay, pain scores, and repeat interventions. METHODS: We performed a retrospective study to compare EUS-GBD vs PT-GBD at 7 centers (5 in the United States, 1 in Europe, and 1 in Asia), from 2013 through 2015, in management of acute cholecystitis in patients who are not candidates for surgery...

REVIEW
Tiing Leong Ang, Anthony Yuen Bun Teoh
Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided drainage is now firmly established as the best option for drainage of walled-off pancreatic fluid collections (PFC). It has high clinical efficacy, similar to surgical and percutaneous approaches, but with lower morbidity and costs. It is superior to non-EUS guided approaches because even collections without endoluminal bulging can be successfully drained. Transmural drainage alone is sufficient for pseudocysts, but in the context of walled-off pancreatic necrosis (WON), adjunctive direct endoscopic necrosectomy (DEN) may be required...

Conservative management of an aortic graft infection is defined as "the nonresectional treatment of an aortic graft that has an established infection." Incidence of aortic graft infections is 0.5 to 5% and the estimated mortality rate from aortic graft infections ranges from 8 to 27%. We present the case of a 73-year-old male patient with an infected abdominal aortic graft following an emergency ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. Postemergency repair, he developed ischemic colitis with sigmoid colon perforation leading to fecal peritonitis and secondary sepsis...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Endoscopic ultrasound-guided drainage (EUS-GLB) is a minimally invasive option for patients with cholecystitis who are poor surgical candidates. Compared with percutaneous drainage (PC-GLB), earlier studies have demonstrated similar efficacy with improved quality of life. We present a multicenter, international experience comparing PC-GLB and EUS-GLB in nonsurgical patients with cholecystitis. METHODS: All patients who underwent either PC-GLB drainage or EUS-GLB drainage from 7 centers between January 2010 and December 2015 were included...

A 58-year-old female patient who had anastomotic leakage after a Whipple operation was treated with a percutaneously placed pancreatico-biliary drainage catheter. Complete secondary healing of the anastomotic defect and leakage was seen on control cholangiography examination on the 35th postoperative day, and the pancreatico-biliary drainage catheter was removed. She was discharged on the 39th postoperative day uneventfully. Percutaneous pancreatico-biliary drainage should be kept in mind as an alternative treatment option of complicated pancreatic anastomotic leakage after a Whipple operation...

A coronary fistula (CF) is a rare congenital cardiac anomaly in which there is a connection between the coronary artery and a cardiac chamber or a great vessel. In the paediatric population, a CF is usually asymptomatic. While the circumflex coronary artery (Cx) is the least common source of a CF, the right heart chambers are the most common location of drainage. Herein, we present a symptomatic 10-month-old boy with an atrial septal defect (ASD) in whom we incidentally detected a CF, which stemmed from the Cx and drained to the right atrium...

BACKGROUND: Lung abscesses are commonly treated with antibiotics. However, some patients fail to respond and may require percutaneous catheter drainage or surgical intervention. Bronchoscopic drainage (BD) of lung abscesses emerged as a therapeutic alternative in selected patients. OBJECTIVE: To describe our experience with 15 patients who underwent BD at our center during 2006-2016. METHODS: Patients underwent flexible bronchoscopy. Under fluoroscopic guidance, a pigtail catheter was introduced into the abscess cavity, its correct position being confirmed by the injection of contrast medium...
